17 June 2004) – The U.S. pipeline subsidiary of international project management and services company, AMEC, has been awarded a contract valued at approximately US $60 million with Cheyenne Plains Gas Pipeline Company, LLC to construct two-thirds of its Cheyenne Plains Pipeline Project.

It is the largest U.S. cross-country pipeline project planned for construction in 2004.

AMEC’s Houston-based U.S. Pipeline, Inc. will construct 255 miles of 36-inch natural gas pipeline and four miles of 30-inch natural gas pipeline between Eastern Colorado and Western Kansas for the Cheyenne Plains’ pipeline project. U.S. Pipeline’s work also includes the construction of nine launcher/receiver facilities, 13 mainline valve installations and six delivery side-tap installations.

“This contract win firmly establishes U.S. Pipeline as the premier pipeline construction company in the United States,” said Greg Curran, President of U.S. Pipeline, Inc. “In addition to the significance of the project’s size, this project will be constructed using automatic welding with X-80 pipe. This project will employ the latest advances in pipeline design, materials and construction that will result in a safe, dependable and cost effective pipeline for Cheyenne Plains and its customers.”

Upon approval by applicable regulatory authorities, U.S. Pipeline is expected to begin construction in July and complete its portion of the pipeline in November of this year. Approximately 800 people are to be employed during peak operations.

The overall Cheyenne Plains Pipeline Project will run 380-miles and will extend from Northern Colorado to Greensburg, Kansas. Providing an outlet for the growing supply of Rocky Mountain natural gas to markets in the Midwest region of the United States, Cheyenne Plains will initially be able to transport 560 thousand dekatherms of natural gas per day.
